Our Brand Story
Meaning - Full of imagination, creative
KAAVIA was born to create versatile, multifunctional staple pieces. We aim to take a creative approach to slow fashion by designing pieces meant to be reworn and restyled in unlimited ways. Our minimalist glam pieces are Indian inspired and American made locally in California.
KAAVIA designs are manufactured in small batches locally in California with proper working conditions. Our accessories are designed and curated in small batches from women-owned small businesses. We make an effort to use packaging materials made from sustainable, compostable and recyclable materials.
Meet the Designer - Deepika Rao Reddy
Deepika studied Fashion Design at The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles. After graduating, she worked alongside Hollywood fashion designers and gained valuable experience in the LA fashion industry. Deepika envisioned designing apparel that solved an issue, but stayed true to her own design aesthetic. That’s when KAAVIA was founded - apparel meant to be reworn and restyled to promote sustainable slow fashion. As a South Asian American, Deepika's designs are inspired by Indian silhouettes, but are meshed with her own simple statement style. The pieces she designs are universal, so that people of all cultures can style them in their own way.
